out at massachusetts senator scott brown mocking brown's calls for bipartisanship as a joke, describing brown as one of the most partisan senators ever to serve. >>> we now know which political office may be sought by another member of the bush family, george p. bush. his father, former florida governor jeb bush, confirms in a letter to potential donors that his son is considering a run for texas land commissioner. >>> that birth removement didn't work out so well. now conservative group decided to ramp things up using robo calls to rally for president obama's impeachment barely a week after his re-election. >> our only recourse now is to move forward with the full impeachment of president obama. we suspect that obama is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors and is laying ground for impeachment as laid out in the constitution. >>> finally, nate silver might be going hollywood. "the new york times" 538 blogger who redikted the obama victory says he's been approached with offers from tv producers and talent agents. we knew that was coming. >> and that's your morning dish of "
in ohio, senator brown and josh mandel, and i asked senator brown point blank could he support raising the eligibility age on social security medicare and he said no. that's just not going to happen. this was a guy who just won in a swing state. how many senate democrats are in that position? we know where the president is willing to go here and it's a lot further. >> no doubt about it and some of this, as brad mentioned earlier was discussed during the debt limit negotiations last year. how many senators would be with senator brown? probably ten. the rest would have to be kicking and screaming. i think everyone understands that some of these issues have to be addressed as part of a larger agreement. you mentioned speaker boehner, the other thing to watch out for is the fact senator mcconnell, normally a kaubs, very cautious politician by nature will look over his shoulder to make sure he doesn't face a tea party challenge. all of that together, i think, makes it a toxic atmosphere and something we will have to all watch carefully. >> now you -- do you believe that the president is giv

for them down ballot. this could actually create a problem. scott brown, now the defeated republican senator from massachusetts, lost to elizabeth warren convincingly a week ago today, would be a formidable candidate in a mid 2013 special election. democrats do have sort of a little bit of a cushion. they won seats last tuesday, they have a little senate cushion but i can tell you there's probably some grimaces about the idea if john kerry doesn't get state he'll get defense within senate democratic circles. >> a democratic governor who could appoint himself. >> right. >> or figure out some other way, could run for that office himself and run against scott brown and he would be a formidable candidate. they have some democrats in massachusetts who are possible candidates. but the other piece is susan rice. i have to tell you, be she is so popular with the white house, there is no question in my mind, i've never been more certain about a nomination or the intention to nominate. not just a trial balloon. but she is being blamed by many on the hill, democrats and republicans, and the whi
political problem. the notion scott brown would be a frontrunner to replace kerry if he were to tep out of that seat. the democrats have a little more cushion but not a seat that democrats would want to put in jeopardy and that's a mark against kerry. you also have someone very good in the senate in jack reed from rhode island who a lot think would be a great defense secretary. they have options. again to go to chuck hagel, strong people out there for both these jobs. they will fill them well one way or the other. >> and one point, chuck hagel is, of course, ray lahood was a republican but i think ray is probably going to leave as well. chuck hagel would be a great appointment and he's best suited for defense. wouldn't you agree with that? >> i think that's probably right. >> if you have reached a consensus on it -- >> chuck it is. >> i have decided not to leave this position for secretary of defense. i hate to say it now, ahead of the actual -- >> who would be better to take on the military end strum stril complex than you. >> we have to go to break. president obama turns mitt romney's
's left to save is his reputation. why is he throwing that way away? willie brown is here along with ashley parker of the "new york times." mayor, you were a pro, it seems that romney is not a pro. he had a good concussion speech. the president through him a big offer, a hoover commission. he whips back with this accusation the president bought the election. >> total and complete bitterness. this man obviously is wrong for the game. he has lost and he lost badly. he's embarrassed, and he's trying his best to minimize the victory. he's trying his best in some fashion to say to people it was taken from me unfairly, that i should have won, and that if there had been only my kind of people voting, i would have won. however there was some other people voting, and they're the people that you and i don't like. that's what he's saying to his people, and that's wrong. >> let's take a look at the audio from the conference just like that 47% it was recorded. let's hear romney talking to his donors in which he says in this tape the president's victory was basically the result bribes to memb
're fired" with an article on the lakers dismissal of second year coach mike brown. in this week's office politics, the "washington post's" pulitzer prize winning column eugene robinson. we talked about the election night speeches and how president can better reach across the aisle in his second term. i talked to him about his election takeaway. >> the big takeaway from me, this is the america of today. the voters who really turned out and turned out enthusiastically, the electorate was a different electorate from that which the republicans expected. it was the electorate of the new america. more minorities, especially more latinos. women came out. we knew women would come out in large numbers but came out apparently in of issues that the romney campaign frankly didn't quite get. the obama campaign team understood what the electorate would look like, and the romney team did not. >> it is a divided country ideal logically. there are divisions that are still going to have to be healed. 55 million or so people voted for president obama, 53 million and change voted against him. right? so thos

'83 to '86, what were the top marginal tax rates? 50%. obviously 39% by itself
this through a political lens, does he want jon kerry take the seat and give that seat back to scott brown? have dr. rice go through a bruising confirmation battle right now? but attend of the day, it's about politics. >> kiki, in addition to susan rices, other women mentioned. sheryl sand best as commerce secretary. what do you think is the likelihood of either of those? >> i can't speak to the likelihood because it would be pure speculation. these are accomplished leaders. they're women. and i think it goes back to the other issue that you mentioned, is the skill there? is the talent there? is the trust there to serve the people? you make good points to their decisions about what somebody does or doesn't want to put their family through. the personal politics are going to be out of this. i think we're seeing signals from both sides. they understand the need to actually work together on issues. that goes for presidential appointments as well. let's get the president's appointments approved and through. unless there's a material reason they shouldn't. >> all right, robert, here's the $6 mi
to fill it. you might see scott brown attempt a comeback. neither of them is seen as by many people, not by all people but by some people, neither is seen as the absolute perfect dhois. they have drawbacks. who else might be considered? i think the national security adviser, tom donlon, if he were offered the job he would take it. secretary of state is considered about the best job for many people. joe biden said when he was a senator maybe he'd rather be be secretary of sfat rather than president and certainly vice president. it's considered one of the better jobs to have, a lot of people aspire to get. the president has to think globally about a national security team. does tom donlon stay as national security adviser? an extraordinary amount of foreign policy is in this administration. it's like nixon and kissinger. big foreign policy designs are made in the white house by tom donlon and the president and vice president. you have to figure out that piece as well as now the cia job as well as secretary clinton, who would like to say as soon as possible. she did before. as i keep s
be a special election and that special election, scott brown, who's just defeated by elizabeth warren is primed and ready to go to have a good chance of taking one seat away from the democratic enhanced majority not something they want to give up. >> listen to mark's description of the foreign policy team, how many dominos he listed, how many jobs, how many vacancies. when you start going down through the cabinet, attorney general, for example, treasury secretary, this is where it gets interesting. there are people whose job it is, game these, i'll go to the president with options. this is the kind of president that has a lot of options in mind already. you have to be careful because special elections can do funny things and the result can be contrary to what the white house would like to see. >> brian, you've raised the subject of treasury secretary. jack lew is the chief negotiator on fiscal cliff, chief of staff, former omb director, he has real economic background but let me ask, is he the strongest candidate for treasury secretary or would the president be better served to have someone fro
person right now in the state that could beat scott brown in a special election. none of the house members really have the name id or the sort of the juice to do it. so he is really the one. >> who else do you think, boyce? who else do you think goes? who comes? >> i think the most interesting one is state, what is going to happen. hillary clinton is obviously out. is it going to be kerry? if it is kerry, you have to look at the state of massachusetts. duval patrick would appoint himself. and there would be an election. to me that's just as important. i thought janet napolitano is someone who is at the top of the list. but she is someone who is considered to be pretty partisan. from the republican ranks, i suspect just like he did last time around, the president is going to look at the republican ranks and consider who he can bring in. last time gates stayed over. john greg was offered a position. i think you're going to see something like that happen. but it won't be mitt romney in the cabinet. >> not in the cabinet. but mitt romney, i say may play more of a role than people reali
